Is Overhead Garage Storage Safe?

Garage ceiling storage racks are safe, but you should always be cautious of electrical issues.

Never use nails or screws that penetrate the rack or hooks when installing overhead racks.

  • Install heavy-duty steel brackets every two feet. For maximum safety, store heavy items on the rack instead of in the ceiling.

  • Use the appropriate assembly material for the overhead rack. The material determines the strength of the installation.

  • Wear goggles to protect your eyes during rack installation. Debris falling from overhead is a common cause of eye injuries.

  • Keep assembly materials away from children and pets.

  • Never work above your head.

ACSR Garage storage racks are more secure and safer than other garage storage solutions. Our overhead storage racks are bolted to the ceiling and, in an ideal installation, the wall, so they don't touch the ground. This means they can support a significant amount of weight, making them highly secure, and they won't get in the way of your garage door opening or closing.

Before installing any overhead storage rack, ensure no cables are running across the floor, as this can be dangerous. You should also check that no pipes or wires are running directly above, as these could damage the racks. 

Overhead storage racks are not only a great way to organize for extra space, but they also protect your stuff from the elements, such as dust and ground-level debris. They also make an attractive storage option, especially when you don't have the space for a storage shed.

Requested a quote online, within 1 week the racks were installed. Phillip the tech was on time, 7:30am. He walked me through the best possible positioning of racks and install was quick and he cleaned up everything. We are very happy with this company and product.
